A Special Life Taken Too Soon
My name is Tori Bell and I am Hassani Bell’s older sister. August 28th, 2021 is the day I will never be the same. Someone took my heart and soul from me. I can’t sleep. My brother was shot ten times. Twice in the back of his head while just getting a hair cut at the barbershop in North Oakland, Ca. My brother apparently tried to run and two masked gunman shot my brother and took his life from him. Destroyed my life, my whole families life and my brother health. I love my brother. I’ve been asking God to not take my brother from me. This is the person I go to when I’m down. The person who is a father figure to my son, Amirio. I’m hurting. Whoever did this, you did this to a great person. He was going to San Francisco State University for his Bachelors Degree in Social Justice. I literally told my brother I want to see him walk across the stage. I’ll never get that chance. We was supposed to go to Disneyland I’ll never get that chance. My brother was suppose to see me become a doctor and succeed. He suppose to see my son grow up. I’ll never get that chance. You took everything from me and I am so hurt. Bruh I need my brother to be here with me. How can I go on anymore or be happy. When apart of my soul is transitioning somewhere else. I love you, Hassani Bell, I will always love you. I’m so sorry I wish I could have protected you. I would give up my life for you, you don’t deserve this your great kid and a amazing young man. But God is calling you home and I have to accept that. I miss my brother so freaking much. This is the worst thing that could have happened in my life. I’m older than Hassani and I’m suppose to go to God before you Hassani . I can’t believe I’ll never see you smile again. I’ll never hold you in my arms again. I can say I love you but I’ll never hear it back. You was my protector, my best friend, my brother. You are my heart. You mean the world to me and you gone and I can’t bring you back. I miss my little brother and he was taken from me. Born on October 17th, 1997, Hassani Bell was only 23 years young with a full life ahead of him. He was in the social justice program at San Leandro High School, who devoted his life to our community and the injustice of the people who are impacted by gun violence and sadly the same issues he was devoted to change took his life. Rest In Peace Hassani, I love you so much and one day when God calls me home I’m gone see you again.
Due to the nature of the circumstances this fundraiser is being used for memorial expenses that are not covered by victims of a violent crime, moving costs for the Bell Family for their safety due to the nature of the murder and also medical expenses. Hassani did not have medical insurance nor did he have life insurance for this unforeseen circumstance. The bell family will utilize donations by having a memorial with Hassani’s University to give him a posthumous degree in honor of his life’s mission and goals. To honor his name.
